Any thoughts on getting the inspection sticker off? It was a bit of an issue getting them to put it on a plate :-(

Now that is glossy!

As for the stickers you can maybe try googone. I personally like them on the bumper as I like to look as legal as possible from the rear.

Wow! Congratulations! Zaino + DSLR pics make your car show the glossiness!

For the inspection sticker, once you peel it you would have to get another one. I had mine relocated by my mechanic friend to the side plate.

I have no problem getting another, do you know someone who can issue one that will let me put it on the side plate? The dealer won't let me.

Call Miyazaki Auto Repair (808) 833-9033) and ask them. I had my 2009 E90 done their and they did it for me back in 2010. Some inspectors know that it is now legal to put them right beside your plate.

I asked the dealer too about that and got rejected. Im happy that they granted my request of no front plate though..

First off, congrats on the new car, it looks really stunning!

If it gets rejected, you could always tell them not to do the inspection. I doubt there's anything saying they are the ones that have to do the inspection. It would mean you would hit the road without safety inspection, but that's a different story lol

Either way, with my X5 I had a plate next to the license plate as well. Same story, dealer didn't want to put the safety sticker there, so what I did was take it off within an hour after they put it on (also, they did not mind putting it on loosely so I could easily take it off myself). I was always able to take it off as a whole without ripping it

For now, I have a metal plate on the bottom rear of my car. I'm not sure if I will move it to the license plate. It's ok where it is now I guess, it doesn't really bother me there, plus this way I don't have to worry when I'm in the airport area with all the sheriffs there (that really is a hot spot to get pulled over when something is not 100% with your car lol) and I read actually just now that yesterday someone posted somewhere that, while it is indeed legal, someone did get pulled over because he had the safety next to the plate and not on the bumper, so not even all cops seem to be aware of this and I kind of don't want to get into a dispute thing lol. It's stupid really, you'd think having all the info in the same spot at the license plate would be the best thing to have, but nooo lol

Btw, here's some stickers that never expire: http://islandbuilt.*********.com/

edit: Well, I have no idea why that just got censored but simply type '*********' at the stars and you'll have the correct url
edit2: LOL really? Well, let me try it with spaces in between: B I G C A R T E L
really, is that really something to censor? wtf lol

As long as the sticker is somewhat on the right side of the vehicle it is legal.

Going to get rid of the x5 and 335 to get a x5m. We only need one car now so no need to keep paying for two.
